Post by: tschmidlin on February 09, 2011, 06:58:56 PM
Why would you make a beer and call it Pork Soda?  Anyone try it yet?

So grab yourself a can of pork soda, you'll be feeling just fine!  Nothing quite like sittng around the house swillin' down them cans of swine!   
Sorry, I've always been a Primus fan.
Is it kosher, I wonder?

It doesn't even have any pork!  Then again Matilda probably doesn't have any bits of Matilda in it.  Probably.

There's gotta be a joke in here somewhere but I'm just not finding it.  Something to do with them being forced to buy their grain/hops from a particular congressional district or something along those lines.

Too bad the name's taken. That would be great for a rauchbier.

Damn... a guy in our club made a beer he called pork soda last fall.  It contains smoked pork chops (yeah, really!) and sage, among other things.  It does not suck.

I would totally try that!  But why "soda"?  I don't get it.

It might be a regional thing...  I have family in upstate New York, and beer is called soda, you never hear them ask for a beer.

the first thing I thought when I saw this thread, was "ah, a fellow primus fan".

I have to think that's all this is about.

"Wynona's got herself a big brown beaver
And she shows it off to all her friends.
One day, you know, that beaver tried to leave her,
So she caged him up with cyclone fence.
Along came Lou with the old baboon
And said Recognize that smell?
Smells like seven layers,
That beaver eats Taco Bell. "

Maybe it is "dry hogged" to get the pork aroma?

The pub brewer for Goose Island, Jared Rouben, is actually a big Primus fan, so that was the inspiration. It is also a collaboration brew with Longman & Eagle, designed to "cut the fat" in their pork dishes. I'll give it a try next time I hit Goose Island. I really enjoy the work Goose Island has been doing with their Belgians, so I'm sure it's good.
